Southern Alaska has some of the highest mountain goat populations in the world. These coastal mountains aren’t just beautiful…Trophy quality mountain goats are plentiful. Amazingly our hunting areas don’t get much hunting pressure, so you won’t be seeing other hunters while you are in the field. In fact, we have areas where you’ll be hunting mountain goats that have never seen a human…and in this day and age that’s pretty cool! Because of that, trophy quality is excellent.
Starting at the same level of the goats gives you a huge advantage!
This is set up to be an “easy” mountain goat hunt, but does have the potential to be a fairly physical hunt, depending on the situation.
On our Southern Alaska mountain goat hunt, you’ll fly in to the same elevation as the goats live and hunt from there. This is an absolute game changer!
On most goat hunts, you camp in the lower country, glassing up until you find your target billy…then the work begins. On this hunt, you shouldn’t have to do that big climb.
High Trophy Quality
They target older, mature billy’s with horns averaging between 9 and 10 inches, and they have an incredible success rate of 95-100% depending on the year. Hunting season is September through January, but the hair on mountain goats is what makes the trophy in most people’s’ opinions, so we suggest you hunt between October and the end of January.
As long as you’re in decent shape, you can do this mountain goat hunt!
They haven’t made any exercise equipment that will prepare you for the real thing, but the harder you work to get yourself in shape before the hunt the better and easier it will be for you. That said, this is a mountain goat hunt that almost anyone can do.
Do yourself a favor and get in shape prior to your hunt. You won’t regret it. We promise.
